The flag of Mera canton is composed of two horizontal stripes of equal dimensions. The upper part is green, representing the exuberant vegetation of the forests and the crops that are the source of income for the region. The lower stripe, yellow, represents the mining, plant and animal resources, whose technically improved exploitation shall be a positive factor for the canton's progress. At left is a blue triangle, representing the sky and the several rivers that irrigate the soil. It also represents the spiritual resources of the inhabitants for the conquest of a better cultural and economical standard. The triangle is charged with a big and two smaller stars, representing the urban parish and the the two rural parishes of Shell and Madre Tierra, respectively. Were new parishes to be established in the future, the number of stars would be automatically incremented.
